Wolf von Bibra from Brennhausen

Wolfgang von Bibra (1862-1922) from Brennhausen emigrated from Europe to the New York area in 1888 or 1889 after marrying a girl of lower social standing. He had to leave his elite cavalry regiment in Austria and went to America to start a new life. He supported his family using his hobby as an artist. He was my (Carl S. von Bibra) great grandfather.
